I have a good offer outstanding from a tech firm (350K TC) and just got connected to a recruiter from one of the alternative investment firms (PE/Hedge/VC 35bn AUM) in NYC and it seems they want to go through the process with me. The base range given is 350K (excluding bonus and others). TC wise.. I'd like to try and see how far I can go but the tech firm is something that I really like. Is working at PE or hedge fund considered a prestige experience? YoE 14 all in consulting. Worth trying?
I have 4.8 years of exp in performance engineering and cleared technical interview of Accenture management level 10 My current CTC is 8.5 fixed What should i ask them as expected CTC in fixed and joining bonus which not very unreasonable.
I know M&A has a terrible rep, but if there’s anyone who enjoys it (or at least doesn’t completely hate it), could you please say what you like about the practice? Interviewing for an M&A position and really do want to love the job, at least for a year. FYI, I’m retooling from lit, and no, staying at my current firm isn’t an option.
How do you decide your breakdown of pre- and post-tax retirement account contributions? I put in 10% of salary post and 6% pre (ACN match) but no idea if this is appropriate.
Any MBB folks down to give me feedback/advice on my resume? Also looking for a potential referral if possible. Only if you think I have a chance!
Kinda disturbing how intensely some folks ordering the iPhone X are being attacked online. Why does it matter if others want a phone? It seems to be another manifestation of the culture wars.
Interested in comp data points for Accenture strategy? Consultant level, MCOL. (DC/Philadelphia etc.)
If I gave a salary range in my pre-screen and then got an offer in that range, can I negotiate higher? They said 70-80k. I said I’m look for something higher (more in the 90-100k) and they said that should be doable, but really I want something in the 110-120k range (gave a lowball bc didn’t want to turn them off in the first round). How do I got about asking for higher?
Does what I contribute to an employer 401k affect how much I can contribute to my own Roth IRA/IRA or are the max contributions counted separately? I’m looking to contribute the max to my Roth for the first time but don’t want to accidentally over contribute. Any advice is appreciated :)
How do some of the Big 4/ACN levels compare to job roles and titles at Amazon? I’m a manager within the Accenture Security practice with strong focus on security compliance and risk. Trying to see which Amazon non titles would be equivalent to or above my Accenture role. If someone has a career path (analyst, senior analyst, mgr, sr mgr, etc) that would be helpful.
Tbh, I just start vigorously nodding my head on Zoom when I see the partner doing so. Idk what’s happening in these client calls

Anyone know of any openings for a SC in commercial SI PMFT? Trying to switch from federal and staffit is zero help (surprise).
Maybe it's because I've never done drugs, but that Fishbowl opening sound reminds me of a bong hit.
Incompetent senior is up for promotion this year and is mostly likely gonna get promoted cuz she knows how to kiss asses. A couple people on her projects already quit and no associates want to (con’t)
